Venice, Italy. October, 1981

I have recently heard of two laws enacted in Venice. One forbids the use of roller luggage because of the noise such heavy traffic can make. (Stiff fines are imposed, that is if the law is still enforced. It's Italy, after all.) The other bans the feeding of pigeons in squares such as this one, the Piazza San Marco. One hopes that this law is rigorously enforced. (Any visitor to Venice knows that the number of pigeons shown in this photo is ridiculously and uncharacteristically light.)
